Electric Appliance Calculator – Help and Information

Freezer

Freezers, although plugged in all the time, actually cycle on and off at a rate that depends on a number of factors. These factors include how well it is insulated, room temperature, how often the door is opened, if the coils are clean, if it is defrosted regularly, and the condition of the door seals.

This calculator estimates that your freezer is only actually running 1/2 of the time.
